    Hello:

    Does anybody know if these are handled by ESET?


    LavaSoft provided the following list of malware.

    Do you have access to those files? Submit them maybe they have under different name but in case they don't

    Since security vendors name threats differently, it's impossible to tell unless you scan the files with ESET. Also it doesn't mean that the security software you mentioned detects all variants of the mentioned malware under the names you listed and some may even miss completely.

    To assist, I googled Win32.Trojan.Besut to see if others use one of the names.

    Turns out that it is used by at least one other source.

    Here is that link

    http://community.landesk.com/support/docs/DOC-23804



    Now I'm going to look in ESET's library of parasites and MSE's.

    there is nothing in the ESET threat encyclopedia I can find for Wind32.Trojan.Besut. Looked it up the hard way, 1st under W, then T, finally B, found zip. A naming syntax difference is ESET uses more slashes (/) and the other sources use periods (.) / implies path names, periods imply file names. FWIW I prefer periods. The other thing that would help me is if the ESET had a search function rather than making me do 3 manual scans.

    My subscription for ESET runs out in October 2011 so I'm working to see if I continue with ESET (the easiest path) or change to product X a more labour intensive path.

    Completeness of definitions is just one factor for me in this matter.
